My cat took a shower. :)

My daughter was home and heard the shower going. She thought that was odd, because no one else was in the house at the time. So she investigated--and there was the cat in the shower stall with the water on.

My shower door is a glass one, with a chrome frame--the top of the frame is about 3 inches across.

Apparently he had jumped from the window sill to the top of the frame. I had seen him do that once before and rather stupidly tried to rescue him--he looked so off-balance and unsure about how to get down. I got a scratched face (accidental, I’m sure) for my trouble. Hint--NEVER try to rescue a cat from somewhere above your head But I figured he had probably learned something about the wisdom (or lack thereof) of jumping up onto the frame of a shower door.

Anyway, he apparently didn’t learn anything from the experience. We speculate he jumped up on the door again, and then down into the shower stall, either landing on the water faucet on the way down, or maybe jumping up onto it trying to get out.....anyway, the water was on and there was a very wet cat huddling in the driest corner of the stall he could find.

We’ll see if he learns anything from THIS experience.

Lucky it wasn't just on hot! Sure glad you figured that one out! LOL!
I had a cat that would curl up in sink, like the water turned on until it almost covered his back, and then, take a tongue bath.

Yeah, the idea of it being hot scared me too, I still get the shivers when I think about it--but the shower is a large one and the water spray doesnít wet all of it--also the shower water takes forever to get warm, so hopefully he would have found his way to a dry spot if he needed to.

Anyway, I guess my shower door will stay open a bit when itís not being used.

Gray and white--white face, chest, tummy, feet; the grey part is tabby marked or almost spotted in the right light; you might not even notice the markings in most lighting.

He almost looks like he has eye-liner on--it makes his eyes really striking against his white face (says proud grandmama) He has a short tail (about half the length of a regular tail, with a crook in it, that you can feel but not really see, about an inch away from his rump.

We got him at the shelter a couple of months ago--they weren’t quite sure of his age, but he seems to be about 8-9 months old. Very active, but a lap sitter and a shoulder cat. LOUD meow. And about the most tolerant cat to being picked up and held in just about any position than I’ve met--almost as flexible as a ferret (who remind me of holding a largish snake--they fold their front legs back along their body and just kind of slide through your hands, bending their long neck around in all directions).

Our last cat was grey and white too, but with no trace of tabby stripes. And her face was rather cobby. This guy is more long legged with a longer slightly roman-nosed face--that, his loud meow and the crooked tail makes me think he has some asian blood, though not anywhere near as elegant or aristocratic looking as the purebred types are.

enjoyed visualizing your kitty-cat and slinky ferrets!
